Glendale Radon Testing

What to Know About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing chemical. Radon is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.

Many properties in the Glendale area have a radon gas concentration near or above the actionable amount.

Radon gas filters out of the silt, not the structure. No property, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon gas intrusion.

Every house meshes with the dirt underneath it differently. That is why houses adjacent to each other may have majorly different radon concentrations.

Radon gas levels will fluctuate on different days and with the seasons within a normal range. A one-time radon sample is a snapshot and a dependable bellwether of whether or not the home has a radon gas problem.

Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. That means radon gas concentration won’t be higher if the house is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Filter into your structure?

No home is entirely airtight.

Radon gas may suffuse through each ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump pumps, pipeworks, and slight gaps in the concrete foundation.

Your method to know with certainty the accumulation of radon in the home is to have a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Test Procedure

Measuring a home for radon is a special procedure when completed as a part of a real estate sale.

Our radon gas specialist will place the radon detectors in the house. Radon analyzers will be placed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties, several devices are placed in the property for the radon gas measurement.

Our radon technician will seal every window, close the flue on the chimney, and confirm the heating and cooling system is running in the required manner. Your radon gas specialist will additionally treat all indicated windows with tamper-proof tape to confirm that draft standards are maintained.

The radon apparatus are stored in the structure for two or three days measuring the prevalence of radon gas in the property. An expert will revisit the house after the radon testing is finished to return the monitors and create a report.

    Bradley was fantastic. Everyone was trying to deter us from hiring an inspector as it was the final walk through for a brand new home, but we wanted peace … More of mind. He was incredibly thorough and efficient, and produced information that probably has saved us years of frustration (ex. missing sections of foam in attic, broken truss). Even the home builder was appreciative of his findings as they knew a professional had came through and followed his report fully.
